How Can I Avoid To Spread Impurities?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Seekersguidance.org

Answered by Ustadh Tabraze Azam

Question: As salaam alaykum

One of the children urinated on a mat outside the bathroom. I believe I saw a small area of dampness on the actual carpet near where the large amount of impurity was (2mm in diameter). When I went later to examine it I could not see the dampness. As this is outside the bathroom often one will come out with wet feet from bath/ wudu and I am concerned that if we stand in this area we will spread impurity. What should we do?

Answer: Wa alaikum assalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,

I pray that you are in the best of health and faith, insha’Allah.

There are two things:

(1) Don’t investigate into such matters. It is far-fetched that you saw dampness which was 2mm in diameter.

(2) if the ground dries, and there are no traces of impurity, the ground is considered to be pure.

Please see: Waswas [Baseless Misgivings] Regarding Apostasy and Purity and: Avoiding Impurities When Using the Bathroom and: Key Principles Relating to Certainty, Doubt, and Baseless Misgivings (waswasa)

And Allah alone gives success.
